Surnames: King, Sayle, Penn
I have it that she was born in Orange Co. NC probably Chappel Hill, moving as an infant to TN where the rest of her sblings were born. Her first marriage was to Dr. Samuel G. Sayle (not Sayles) in 1826 and is said to have had six issue by him before his death about 1835. Three of these I can account for. First born was Judge Claudius Galon Sayle 1826-aft. 1882, second was Capt. Samuel Algernon Sayle 1831-1862, and third was Corilla Frances Sayle 1834-1917. Claudius was a doctor and attorney and an influential person in Fresno Co. CA. Samuel left TX to commanded company 'I' of the 27th TN CSA infantry under whom my ggrandfather John J. Penn (Corilla's brother in law through Maj. W.E.Penn) served. S. A. Sayle was killed early in the war at Shilo.

I don't believe Olivia's dau. Corilla came to TX when she moved. She is found in a boarding school run by a Dr. West till adulthood in Lexington, Henderson Co. TN, and I suspect S.A. Sayle was with her, and would be a reason for his return to TN at the start of the civil war. I do believe Olivia is the reason the surviving Penn's; W.E.Penn, John J. Penn, sisters Mary E. Penn and Sallie Penn moved to Jefferson, TX at the close of the war.
Hope this helps.
